Passed away in hospital on 27 January 2018, aged 79 years.

The beloved husband of Sheila and dearly loved Dad of Lorraine, Debbie and the late Peter.

A loving grandad, great grandad, brother in law and uncle. A true Spotland legend, who was adored and respected by many. He had a great passion for tug of war and rugby, a true Wigan Warriors supporter and to his family became a warrior in his own right. He showed wisdom and pride in all he did and was a hero to his children, grandchildren and many great grandchildren. He will be eternally missed by many.
